Description

With the initial construction of your on-premises CVAD, formerly XenDesktop, environment now complete, it's time to dig in and use it. In this third course out of nine, Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops: Deliver App and Desktop Resources, you'll explore the mechanics behind the creation of virtual machines and VM templates, their use in the creation of machine catalogs and delivery groups, and then the steps involved in getting users on the LAN, and from the outside, securely connected to desktops and apps.

First, you'll begin with the preparation of our virtual machine master images and the deployment of the Citrix VDA. Next, you'll use those VM templates to create a pair of machine catalogs; those catalogs you'll use to create a series of delivery groups that provision desktops and apps to specified user groups. Then, you'll switch over to the user's perspective and explore the deployment and use of Citrix's client-side app now called Citrix Workspace App. Finally, you'll securely extend the entire environment out to the rest of the world by deploying a pair of Citrix ADC appliances and enabling Citrix Gateway. By the end of this course, you'll have the skills to build a new Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops environment.

And I've been building, managing and helping others with Citrix Environments since the days this product was known as wind frame. With the initial construction of our on premises see VAT environment now complete, it's time to dig in and use it. This course explores the mechanics behind the creation of virtual machines and VM templates. Their use in the creation of machine catalogs and delivery groups, and then the steps involved in getting users on the land and from the outside securely connected to your desktops and applications in this third course out of nine will begin with the preparation of our virtual machine master images and the deployment of the Citrix VD A. Next, we'll use those VM templates to create a pair of machine catalogues. Those catalogs will use to create a series of delivery groups which provision UPS and desktops to specified users and user groups. Then we'll switch over to the users perspective that explore the deployment and use of Citrix, his client side up, now called Citrix Workspace. App finally will securely extend this entire environment out to the rest of the world by deploying a pair of Citrix 80 C appliances at enabling Citrix Gateway. If you've just been tasked with building a new Citrix, virtual APS and desktops environment, this course is your next stop brushing up on those skills for success. And then from here you'll be ready to continue on the learning cops As we manage the user experience, monitor and troubleshoot, integrate out layering and work space.
